Friedrich A. Hayek, the Nobel laureate economist, explained better than perhaps anybody else how the complexity of the world leads to self-organizing systems of “spontaneous order” when people are free to pursue their interests in cooperation with others. Atlas Network partner the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research sponsors an annual Hayek Prize for the book that best captures the spirit of Hayek's work in a contemporary context, and is currently accepting nominations for the 2016 award.

“We encourage the nomination of books that advance the ideals of classical liberalism along a range of economic, political, and moral dimensions,” the nomination page explains. “Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom is the inspiration and the model for the Prize.”

Submissions will be accepted through Dec. 15, and the winner will be awarded $50,000. Books must have been published between Jan. 1, 2014, and Nov. 15, 2015. Please contact Dean Ball with any questions.
